Simple Backup Solutions

My company is about to start offering an online backup service (powered by NovaStor) and I am looking for a simple way to back up "small" exchange server 2003 implementations.  Basically what I need to know is what I need to backup and how I need to back it up.  Can I just copy the folder containing the data (MDBDATA)?  Do I need to run a special backup program?

Remember, the systems that I manage usually have fewer than 10 users.

You can use ntbackup (open start-run and enter ntbackup).
Here is a article how to script the operation.

Good luck,

Oh by the way, If the online service uses an Open File backup it will not correctly backup Exchange while the service is running.
